Well I damn sure did & I am proud to announce that I have officially been named CREATIVE DIRECTOR of @prettylittlething 😩😆😆 We’re going to be collaborating on some amazing projects together and i cannot wait to get started! What a way to bring some positive vibes & more #blackgirlmagic into 2021!

Teyana recently announced that she would be retiring from music because she felt unappreciated by her label, Def Jam. With experience as a producer, director, actress, and designer, there was no doubt she’d have plenty of career options to fall back on. Teyana is on the long list of celebrities that have collaborated with the Pretty Little Thing brand. Come 2021, she will the first to serve as the Creative Directory of the company.
This is an amazing opportunity for both Teyana and PLT. For one, she gets to fuse her love for fashion and designing in this new position. It’ll be exciting to see how she uses her creative expression. As for the brand, this union helps speak to demand for more diversity in higher level positions. Both parties will benefit and learn so much from this partnership.
This is the way to expand your brand and make boss moves. As Teyana said in her post, “When one door closes, another one opens.” She is creating beautiful opportunities for herself, and I’m here for it. What do you think?
